At Skelmanthorpe, we aim to provide ALL our children with an engaging, diverse and purposeful curriculum that inspires, motivates, challenges and excites them. We believe that providing our pupils with key experiences will enhance their learning and personal development, helping them become successful, confident learners.
Each year group has a vibrant curriculum that provides our children with the opportunity to learn about a variety of exciting lessons. We have carefully thought about the needs of the children in our school and have planned a series of learning intensions that will provide excellent learning opportunities where our children can develop essential skills, enjoy real-life experiences and make good progress through gaining and applying knowledge.
Our school curriculum provides the best opportunity for all our children to thrive. It is fully inclusive and has many cross-curricular threads. We are committed to ensuring that our children receive a curriculum that they can be proud of. We want all children to enjoy their time here and move on with confidence, equipped with fundamental skills that will support them in the next stage of their education.
The curriculum at Key Stage One and Two consists of planned experiences in school and out. Outcomes are designed to meet the requirements of the National Curriculum and develop the skills needed for learning and for life. Our vibrant and rich curriculum is designed so that the subject specific skills are scaffolded. In order to ensure that progression and balance is maintained, the programmes of study are then developed into medium term plans which clearly highlight the learning objectives, assessment opportunities with differentiated tasks as well as links to other subjects.
We review the curriculum annually, with all stakeholders, to ensure that it continues to drive high standards and expectations for all learners, all of the time.
